Game of Thrones

Years ago I made a GoT map. It was the first major embroidery I had ever made.

It was my introduction to the pretty colors, the relaxing hand movements. I had fallen in love with embroidery.

At the time I started making it I was just starting to read a Game of Thrones. The map was a big help on keeping all the names straight.

I tea died the fabric to add the aged look. I tried to leave the part beyond the wall white but the tea had spread.

At times I wish I had embroidered this piece now. I could make the hand writing so much smoother! But then again I am most certainly pleased with how it turned out.
